Today I napped for about six hours. Six of the most beautiful hours we've had so far this year. Sun, spring temperatures, magic. But I was exhausted, holy crap. I ran the Shamrock Shuffle 10K, with a pre-race 6 miles to start the day. Twelve very speedy miles after a week of 4:45 a.m. workouts. A nap was required, and it was glorious. I've spent the rest of the night in sweatpants in front of the TV. Wrapped up season 2 of Weeds, and am now catching up on Desperate Housewives and Brothers and Sisters. People. If you never watched Weeds, you need to. Swear. Mary Louise Parker is, hands down, my new favorite person of all time. She is FANTASTIC. I could watch that show all day every day. Thank god for Netflix.
My soulmate-forever @sawaboof came to visit last night. We indulged on an entire pizza, double-scoop ice cream cones and a last-minute decision to see Alice in Wonderland in 3D. The best night of gluttony of all time. We practically skipped home from the pizza and ice cream shop, cones in hand, chocolate ice cream melting down our fists. And Alice in Wonderland was The Awesome. Several things: I fucking love Johnny Depp. Love. Love so deeply that there are no other words but "fucking" and "love," I want to be Alice - she is a total badass, and did you SEE those dresses she wore? Amazing. The movie was so pretty and colorful and three-dimensional. Go see it. Yesterday.
So I went to Target the other night to get some necessities. Every month or so I need to re-stock my cleaning supplies. But as I stood in line with my basket of goods, I realized what a ridiculous cat lady I was: cat litter, cat litter deodorizer, cat food, carpet cleaner and deodorizer, air fresheners and Clorox wipes. "No, dude, I don't have a cat. I just like to roll around in cat litter on my floor."
And with that, another Monday awaits, which I think is total bullshit. I'd be happier sticking a needle into my eyeball than going to work tomorrow. Or Tuesday. Or Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, E-V-E-R. The only saving grace is the upcoming weather and the fact that daylight savings time has given us an extra hour of daylight. Spring saves the day.
